I have a plan. It's official. Hopefully I'll be able to stick to this plan though... I seem to change my mind often. I swear designing your own space is the hardest. But I'm in love with this plan! (You can see all the inspiration HERE!)
First of all, my living room is busy. I have a lot of color and a lot of pattern, I love it that way, but because my dining room is open to the living room I wanted to create a space that would flow nicely without competing with the color, texture, and pattern in the dining room. I also wanted to create one whole space that will flow nicely together and feel like a single room but also a separate space. That doesn't sound like something too hard to accomplish right?
To do this, I wanted to keep the color scheme pretty paired down, simple neutrals but full of texture and pattern to continue the feel into the dining room. I also needed to add some additional storage for my overflowing cabinets in the kitchen as talked about in my original inspiration post. What do you think?
I tried to keep things as economical as possible (I'd die for a real Tom Dixon pendant...) but I did splurge on the buffet because I'm dead set on getting a mid-century feeling piece. I am going to keep a good watch on Craigslist to see if something vintage comes up. I'd love an original mid-century piece for sure but we'll see how it goes. I do also want two of the brass pendants. They're going to hang at the same level in a line over the table and I'm super excited about them. Originally I thought three but I feel like it will be too much plus I'm all about going against the norm right now. As for the curtains, I want the pom poms but being the thrifty one I am trying to be adding my own was much more economical than buying pom pom curtains. Plus by sewing them on myself I get to determine the size of the pom pom and of course I'm using the biggest ones I can find! The chairs I've been drooling over for months and months. I love the black with a white high gloss table. How classy looking?! Lastly, the rug... haven't decided if I want to layer that fabulous tribal over a the sisal rug or replace it. I'll get there... What do you think??
